The Soul Scythe was an unobtainable weapon exclusive to the Desktop version. It was removed entirely in the 1.2.2 update.
- This weapon is a reference to a special attack from the Soul Eater anime franchise, specifically Maka Albarn's variation of the Kishin Hunter, which may have also been the reason for its removal.
- This is one of the three weapons that were removed from the Desktop version potentially because of referencing external franchises.
- Desktop 1.2.2: The Soul Scythe's item ID (678) has been changed to the Red Potion, effectively removing the Soul Scythe from the game files.
- Desktop 1.2: Introduced, but impossible to obtain.
